Oh man, I have got to get back into visiting this hawk in TSP. I've been documenting and photographing the three Washington Square Park red-tailed hawks on my blog http://rogerpaw.blogspot.com/ have a look! But it was the TSP hawk(s) that I saw first in the area!

Tommy (for Tompkins Square Park)? Good for a boy or a girl... What a magnificent animal! And an equally magnificent photo.

I like Tommy!

Great pix.

Yesterday at around 8:45am I almost literally ran into a red-tailed hawk sitting on the fence outside NEST on E Houston at Columbia. It was only a few feet from me, just gorgeous. We stared at each other for a minute or so and then it flew into a tree in Hamilton Fish Park. I've seen a Wa Sq hawk from a distance, and have looked fruitlessly for the Tompkins hawks for so long -- I was shocked to see one on the LES!

If anything, the hawk needs a corporate sponsor!
